Welcome to Owl Class!
Owl Class has 20 fabulous children in it this year. Mrs Stocker, Mrs Bradford and Mrs King are all extremely happy to work in such a wonderful Year 2 class.
Yet again I have loved seeing all the work you have been sending me, not just the activities we have set you on the home learning page but all the other creative and exciting learning you have been doing.
This week is half term, so I hope you get out and enjoy the weather and I hope you share some pictures of what you get up to. I am missing seeing you all and really missing hearing your voices chatting about your lives.
My gardening excitement is that the Wargrave geranium has flowered, so is healthy. I have spent most of the week removing some very large bushes- I am preparing an area for a vegetable bed. If you have any suggestions for what to grow, let me know. I have plans for rhubarb, potatoes and lettuce as well as the cucumbers I already have growing.
Mrs Bradford was very excited to receive responses to her video challenge. Thank you. It is Mrs King's turn this week and she would love it if you could build a den- inside or out. Let us see your dens- I know I have seen a couple already over the weeks.
I hope you all keeping safe and I look forward to hearing about what you have been up to.

Weekly/ Daily homework
- Reading, daily reading really has a huge impact. Reading a few pages and then discussing these is the most important strategy to ensure your child has understood what they have read.
- Spellings, The children will be given a set of weekly spellings, this term they will be focussing on the sight words your children need to know. Each week when I test the children we also cover a random selection of spellings from the previous weeks covered. This informs me of whether the children are retaining their spellings and whether they should be able to apply this skill when they write. (Strategies, look, cover, write, check. Sounding out can be useful but only as a last resort. Please encourage your child to look carefully at the words once they have written it and think to themselves does that look right?
- Mathletics, the website is always available for children to practise their skills. Each week I will state the topic of maths that we will be focussing on for your child to log on and practise.
